The Habitation of the Blessed Cover

It's not Ghost Rider, I swear!

I'm SUPER curious about y'all's reaction to this--do you like it, does it make you want to buy it, is it evocative? Opinion me, O Livejournal!

I can think of at least one artist who does. ;)

Yes, and you are a saint (obviously that comment was me.) and it doesn't always go that way. I never got to talk to this artist. The publisher made the decisions. What do you think of the cover, though? I value your taste, obviously.

I like the art a lot. I think the design and typography loses some clarity.... With that lengthy a title, the blurb needed to be bumped to the back cover, so that5 more emphasis could be put on your name.

It doesn't 'read' well at a glance or from a distance... and it's a lot of text info that misses the big selling point: "Catherynne Valente".
